Kingston Boat Store



At Kingston Marine Boatyard, all of our lifting is handled by a 40 tonne Wise Hoist, operating over our purpose built hoist dock. Once a vessel has been lifted, we have a custom wash down facility with high pressure cleaning and sump drainage system.

The hoist can travel the length of our lower terrace or vessels can be transferred to our new self-propelled boat mover. The self-levelling boat mover has a maximum lift capacity of 30 tonnes with multi-directional steering, making the trailer immensely manoeuvrable. The boat mover is reducing transit times from the hoist dock area to the main yard, increasing efficiency and throughput, which is taking further strides as our new custom-built cradles continue to arrive.

Please note that whilst we try an accommodate everyone’s wishes this is a boatyard with a mixture of hard standing and concrete, it is also a working yard where marine maintenance will be undertaken and finally, during the busiest times of the year a certain amount of stacking will mean that the exit order will need to be the same as the entrance! Please talk to us well in advance if we need to consider any of these items for you, your assistance and understanding is much appreciated.
